We’re big fans of the University of Oregon’s Healthy Campus Initiative. First, they’re improving the health of students and faculty living in our community. Second, they give us a chance to partner with Ducks, and we love our Ducks!When we heard they were hosting the “Run With the Duck,” we wanted to hop on board! On Saturday morning, about 40 of our employees joined the students, faculty, and community members that braved the cold to run through the U of O campus. Since the race was free for all the “starving students,” the course was packed with Ducks looking to get some exercise to start their weekend.

The 5K course was beautiful, and finishing on Hayward field was a huge thrill for everyone. But more importantly, we loved seeing the campus full of people looking to live a healthier life. Huge thanks to the U of O Healthy Campus Initiative for having us, it was a blast.

If you took part and want to see how you finished, check out your results from Eclectic Edge Racing: Run With the Duck Results. And of course, here are some snapshots from the race. Special thanks to KVAL for lending us some of their photos. To view all of their photos from the event, visit KVAL.com.
